PITTSBURGH (AP) - Freshman Derrick Colter scored a career-high 25 points and Duquesne led wire-to-wire in a 71-66 win over Western Michigan on Wednesday night.
The Dukes (7-5) led 36-32 at the break and expanded their cushion to 13 with 15:56 to go before the Broncos used a 10-0 run to close to 49-46.
